5) Title: 9th Symposium on Computational Modelling and Experimental Assessment of Transport Processes in Porous Building Materials

Organizer: prof. Oldřich Zmeškal, Ph.D., Faculty of Chemistry, Brno, University of Technology, Purkyňova 118, 612 00 Brno, Czech Republic



Transport and accumulation of heat, moisture, chemical substances, and momentum are phenomena which affect buildings and their inbuilt materials over their whole lifetime period.

Their satisfactory description requires primarily a choice of proper physical and mathematical models because the transport mechanisms are coupled.  The computational implementation of mathematical models is another essential factor involving an application of appropriate methods of numerical solution. The computer simulation tools cannot be utilized properly without knowledge of a variety of transport and storage material parameters, microstructural and structural parameters, which have to be determined experimentally in a wide range of field quantities, such as temperature, moisture content, and concentration of a particular chemical compound. The applied models are also supposed to be verified using critical experiments, in order to assess their overall quality. Therefore, in practical applications the computational modeling and experimental assessment of transport processes cannot be separated without a risk of significant departure from the physical reality.

The symposium brings together physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers working in the field of transport processes in building materials and materials engineering. The main topics include but are not limited to:

  •  Theoretical models of transport phenomena
  •  Computer simulation tools
  •  Material parameters and their assessment
  •  Model verification techniques
  •  Environmental effects on building structures
  •  Risk analysis
  •  Service life assessment studies
  •  High-temperature applications
  •  Applications in a renovation of historical buildings and monuments
  •  Sustainable development and eco-efficient materials
  •  Other applications in building science and building practice
  •  High performance composites
  •  Salt transport, storage, crystallization – modelling, experimental assessment
  •  Life cycle analysis
  •  Layered nanoadditives
  •  Computational and experimental analysis of repair rendering and plastering mortars
  •  Phase change materials in civil engineering
  •  Heavy metals immobilization
  •  Calculation of hydration degree and bound water content
